CLASS ORGANIZATION & GRADING
Each week you will have online class discussions (15 points) and a quiz (10 points).It is important that the student keep up with the class and not fall behind in any of our construction supervisor continuing education courses.
Course modules will be made available to students on Sunday of each week. Class work must be completed before the following Monday. Students will not be able to work ahead of the class although reading assignments will be made available in advance. Actual dates that modules will become available will be posted in advance on the course calendar.
Graded assignments will consist of one quiz for each module and participation in at least two class discussions. Each quiz will count 5 points, class discussions will count 15 points per module. There are two case studies that count 25 points in Module 5 and Module 10.
You can see that I consider class discussions to be a very important part of this course. Students learn more and learn better when they discuss the topic at hand. For that reason, I consider the regular weekly discussions to be even more important than the weekly quizzes.
Grades will be posted on a weekly basis. You will have full access to your grade sheet so you will be able to keep track of how you are doing at all times.
Your overall grade in the course will be determined by the total number of points you have accumulated on quizzes and assignments.
The grading scale is as follows:
225 to 250 points
200 to 224 points
175 to 199 points
Anything less will be considered an unauthorized withdrawal from the course
You will be given more information about the grading and other course matters in the Orientation Module.
